I started with a very strong technical background as a Computer Science undergraduate at CMU and have moved entirely into the role of teacher/tutor/mentor. I have a very wide array of teaching and tutoring experience, especially in Math and Science, and have had success with virtually every student.
My approach is very personable: I pride myself in getting to know my students' learning preferences and tailoring my style to suit them. I'm very patient and always looking to make tutoring fun as well as productive.
Bass Guitar, Guitar, Piano, Upright Bass
I grew up around Atlanta, GA and started playing piano when I was around 7 years old and bass when I was 11. Most of my education has been on the upright bass. I've studied classical bass performance at major music schools on the east coast and in the midwest. I've studied and worked with musicians from many of the great orchestras around the world.
I enjoy working with students who are just coming to the bass or piano for the first time and getting them started with music in a rewarding way as well as more advanced students that need finer musical direction or audition coaching.
*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep a relaxed environment while still being motivating and inspiring. I tailor lessons around what the individual student's goals are. There are materials that I like to use with most students but I'm open to using anything that meets the needs and desires of the student.
I try to find a nice balance of technique work and music. It's important to develop healthy technique from the very beginning. It's very easy to develop bad habits that can have serious health risks down the road (i.e. tendonitis, carpal tunnel, back pain, etc.) that can make it difficult if not impossible to keep playing. I've spent many years undoing bad habits that I developed from the first years that I played bass without any formal instruction. Yoga, Alexander technique, massage, and many great teachers have helped me overcome the issues I had and have helped me develop healthy habits. I try to pass this education on to my students so that they can have an enjoyable and healthy experience with music for the rest of their lives.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stand, and bass. Living room with seating for parents.
*** Travel Equipment ***
The students need to provide their own bass, bow, and music. If I'm traveling to their place they should also have a music stand.
*** Specialties ***
Classical. I have studied with members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic and my teaching and playing reflect the traditions of these teachers and orchestras.
